    TRASHED!!! Let’s talk trash and recycling for Bosque County. The Heart of Texas Council of Governments (Solid Waste Dept.) is giving out more money in the form of grants just like the one that was written for the glass crusher/tumbler in Meridian. So let’s put our heads together and figure out another use for the money in the way of recycling. Bring your complaints/comments/criticisms/suggestions on Sept. 16 at 5:00 p.m. to the Bosque Arts Center and let’s brainstorm. -DT
